The Miami Hurricanes and Virginia Tech Hokies face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Cassell Coliseum. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Virginia Tech that won 80-76.

The Miami Hurricanes come into this game with a 14-5 record overall and they have gone 9-10 against the spread. In the last game against Florida State, Miami’s defense was good giving up 61 points but the offense scored only 60 points. Miami is averaging 75.9 points while their defense is giving up 71.7 points per game. Kameron McGusty has been the top player for Miami averaging 17.8 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 34.6 percent from behind the three point line. In this game, Miami needs their offense to get out to a fast start. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Virginia Tech Hokies who sit with a 10-9 record and they have gone 9-10 against the spread. In the last game against North Carolina they got out to a slow start., and the second half wasn’t any better as they were defeated 78-68. Virginia Tech is averaging 69 points while their defense is giving up 60.7 points per game. Keve Aluma has been the top player for Virginia Tech averaging 15.9 points while shooting 50.6 percent from the field and 24.4 percent from behind the three point line. There are three different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game.

Virginia Tech is 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games. The under is 4-0 in the Hurricanes last four games. The over is 4-1 in Virginia Tech’s last five home games. Miami is 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games following a straight up loss. 

Virginia Tech struggled to score against a terrible defense in North Carolina, and I expect they are going to struggle against a better Miami team. Look for Virginia Tech to struggle to get close to 60 points, and that will be the difference as Miami gets the job done. Back Miami against the spread.
